AllMusic Review by

Despite many attempts, LaToya Jackson has never been able to score a bona fide hit in America. Making a country album proved to be a step in the wrong direction. This uninteresting, bland assortment of "songs" starts off weak and doesn't get any better. Jackson does not have the range or the versatility to cover country classics like Patsy Cline's "Crazy," and her clear misunderstanding of the genre only makes the nauseating originals worse. The heavily clich├ęd "I've Got to Be Bad" and drawn-out "Break a Leg" are prime sufferers of this syndrome. Though not particularly proficient in any musical style, Jackson's R&B and pop output is much stronger than this feeble effort.
